Josh Hutcherson has managed to make a huge name for himself in the world of entertainment with his performance in The Hunger Games trilogy. That performance of Josh Hutcherson was career-defining, and in that, he was starring opposite Jennifer Lawrence. Josh plays Peeta Mellark in the superhit film franchise, and he has recently revealed that he is willing to make his return as Peeta Mellark in the prequel of THG, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. But he has a condition to make return to the prequel, his former crew members and co-stars must return along with him.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins, will be having a screen adaptation with it setting the stage for the original trilogy of The Hunger Games. Though at this point in time, it is still not sure where the plot of the series will be revolving around. After the release of The Mockingjay Part 2 in the year 2015, Hutcherson appeared in a couple of low profile projects only. So in our opinion, it is going to be beneficial for him to return to the series which earlier made him an overnight sensation. This will help him reinvigorate his career.
